“Haley’s Ditch” was a neglected, channelized tributary of Adam's Run polluted with PCBs before the Lockheed Martin Corporation was directed by the Environmental Protection Agency to rid the property of toxic materials. In addition to the work the EPA required, a consortium of public and private entities came together to implement a thorough stream and habitat restoration. With support provided by the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program, the run was successfully restored to its natural state. The new Haley’s Run Park, complete with walking trail, now provides habitat for a multitude of wildlife and has become an important part of the Adam's Run Greenway.
